Red Deer River Watershed Alliance

Using Science and Storytelling to Spur Watershed Action

Total Funded: $30,000
Location: Red Deer, Alberta

This project is about stories, science, and using creative communications to inspire people in central Alberta to protect watershed health. We will engage people in central Alberta to hear their real-world water and land-based stories, complement these stories with a suite of science based messages, and ultimately develop a “Story of the Red Deer River watershed” to be shared widely using creative communications and digital media. Imagine National Geographic meets Central Alberta – this project is a bit like that, in that it will harness the power of stories and compelling visuals to raise awareness and encourage action around key water and land-use issues.
